Broxton mayor under investigation

By Cade Fowler - bio | email

BROXTON, GA (WALB) – Georgia's Secretary of State office found enough evidence of voting fraud against a south Georgia mayor to send the investigation on to the Attorney General.

Broxton Mayor Bobby Reynolds is accused of paying people to vote for him.

He denied that but admitted unlawfully possessing several absentee ballots.

His daughter, Traci Lott, was also named in the investigation. She is accused of assisting three voters in casting early-absentee ballots.

An investigation found that Lott made fraudulent entries on two Oath of Elector forms in which she marked one elector as unable to read English and another as having a physical disability.

The investigation determined the neither elector was incapable of marking their own ballot.

The attorney general's office says it could be several months before they decide whether to file charges.
